Where It All Started
Barbara McLain Properties, now McLain Properties, was founded by Barbara McLain in 1978. Barbara passed on in 2006. We didn’t just work for Barbara, we worked with her and loved her very much. Barbara spent 10 years grooming her granddaughter, Lisa Fore, to take over the company and we are pleased that Barbara McLain’s legacy lives on. Lisa is a motivated individual with a passion and determination second to none. Lisa’s leadership and attention to detail is a strong asset to her clients and the company. She operates on values such as integrity, consistency, creativity, compassion and commitment to excellence. Lisa has followed her grandmother’s footsteps with her involvement, leadership, and commitment to our industry. Serving various leadership roles on a local, state and national level.
Where We Are Now
Nearly 10 years later Lisa found it was time to rebrand Barbara McLain Properties; to bring a fresh new look to our logo, and remove Barbara from the company name. In 2015 Barbara McLain Properties would become the McLain Properties you see today.
Setting the Standards for “Quality of Service”, we continue to follow her words. Quality of Service is not only our mission statement, it is how we do business everyday. Barbara has passed on the customer care culture and it is the foundation for which the company is built.
Lisa is a highly motivated individual with unparalleled passion and determination. Her leadership skills and meticulous attention to detail serve as strong assets for both her clients and the company. As the granddaughter of Barbara McLain, the founder of our company, Lisa's upbringing in the business is complemented by over two decades of active engagement in the property management and real estate sales industry since 1996.
Her dedication extends beyond her clients to the industry itself. Actively participating on numerous boards and committees at both local and national levels, Lisa is unwavering in her commitment to advancing education and professionalism within the real estate community.
Fun Facts: Apart from my passion for real estate, I'm an avid snowboarder with a deep love for adventure and the outdoors. When I'm not catching fresh tracks by jumping out of helicopters, you'll likely find me indulging in a good glass of wine, craft beer, or whiskey.
One of my biggest weaknesses is my unwavering love for animals. I'm such a huge sucker for them that if I could, I'd have my own shelter. Growing up, I had a habit of bringing home strays, and even now, it's not uncommon for me to bring them back to the office after appointments.
